Any ideas whether the clarinet Venn would work on soprano? That might be enough for me to pick up my soprano again!

I love the Venn reed - but within some days of intense and loud playing, the reed became considerably softer, lost power and edge. The same with another reed. Anybody here with some longer time experience with the Venn?

I haven't had the time to play the Venn over a long period, but this doesn't surprise me. It'll be interesting to see if they recover after a rest.
I suppose the answer would be to get a few and rotate them, like cane reeds.

I’ve been rotating 3 for a few weeks now. I’m so impressed with these. Only synthetic I’ve found that replicates cane

I bought a new generation Venn 2.5 for Tenor, I have tried it and didn't like it very much. I thought it was quite hard, but that wasn't the reason I didn't like it. Too bright for me and I just didn't like the tone.

Trying synthetic reeds is an expensive business.
Not so bad with legeres return policy..great reeds for playing in the caravan
